"highest-testing pilot we've ever had at CBS. Ever." - Nina Tassler
Television record keepers immediately wondered if such an alignment of stars had ever happened before. Ms. Cummings, a 28-year-old comedian, has been appearing on Comedy Central and "Chelsea Lately" on E!, but now, suddenly, she is producing and starring in a show on one major network and producing a show on another.
About Whitney and this show:
she heard that Michael Patrick King, who wrote for and produced shows like "Murphy Brown" and "Sex and the City," was looking for a young, funny female writing partner for the sitcom idea that became "2 Broke Girls." They quickly paired up, "and she was instrumental in getting that show going," said Peter Roth, the chief executive of Warner Brothers Television, which is producing "2 Broke Girls."
Both of Ms. Cummings's projects are multicamera comedies with live studio audiences.
